Sometimes I have those days where things just don´t go well and I wonder where did all that crap come from! Do you ever have days like that?

Passion and finding your passion is something that get´s thrown around a lot, but how do you actually make that real life connection with your passion? A conceptual image representing a focus on passion

In 2007 I was fired and I started my first company (that failed) where my sole focus was on making a MASSIVE amount of money. My passion was connected to making money and achieving social status. I believed that would solve all my self-esteem issues and everything else that was a burden in my life.

The same “passion” for money also drove me straight into the wall in 2010. From that experience I had to redefine what my passion should be focused on. It has taken me about 6 years to really nail it down, but now that I´m more clear on why I get up in the morning I would like to share it with you.

A higher purpose than myself- ie. adding as much value to others and the world as I possibly can
✓ Love for the game of life and business
Achieving mastery in business and sharing that knowledge with others

Those are the three things that get me up in the morning and that I look to when those crap days come along and knock me off my feet. Yes, that still happens and will continue to happen in the foreseeable future. On those days I also try to remember that; “Challenges are gifts from God so we can grow.”

Money Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom by Tony Robbins
I have been waiting for this book to arrive on my kindle for the past month and now it´s here. Last night I read the first 100 pages and it´s amazing. Did you know that only 10% of all books sold are in the Non-fiction space? Here is another fact; only 10% of people that buy non fiction finish the first chapter. I find these patterns really interesting! Why do you think the 1% has 95% of the wealth in the world? They read the whole book!
